Robocall fraud now dangerous to health [telecom]

An emergency boil water before drinking warning was issued.  Affected
municipalities put sent out a telephone alert to all residents to let
them know.

And the residents ignored it.

The reason was that people have been so flooded with fraud robocalls
that many folks only answer calls from numbers they already know and
ignore all others.  Since many people don't have their municipality on
their list, they ignored the calls.
